#' @title Write CABO weather files
#'
#' @description
#' \code{write.cabo} prints weather files as used by WOFOST e.g. from
#' MARS AGRI4CAST data (\url{http://agri4cast.jrc.ec.europa.eu/DataPortal/Default.aspx})
#' being composed of one file per year.
#'
#' @param data E.g. a MARS AGRI4CAST weather data.frame containing at least the
#' following columns: LATITUDE, LONGITUDE, ALTITUDE, DAY, TEMPERATURE_MAX,
#' TEMPERATURE_MIN, PRECIPITATION, RADIATION; ET0 is optional
#' @param country The country where the weather station is located
#' @param station The name of the weather station
#' @param stationno The number of the weather station
#' @param lat The latitude of the weather station
#' @param lon The longitude of the weather station
#' @param alt The altitude/elevation of the weather station
#' @param a,b Ångström coefficients
#' @param citation Reference information on the data set (optional)
#' @param author The author of the data set
#' @param desc A short description of the respective data set
#' @param file The path/file where the CABO output files should be written to
#'
